About this property

  • This charming cob cottage with slate tile roof and pretty timber windows is full of character and whilst small, is perfectly proportioned.

The inner door opens directly into an open plan reception room with beamed ceilings, delightful window seats and a large granite fireplace with granite mantel at one end. This spacious room could be comfortably divided into dining and lounge areas.

    Through a door to the rear of this main space is the kitchen where there are plenty of below counter and wall mounted cabinets with a range of fitted appliances, including a stainless-steel oven, electric hob, integrated hood extractor, an under counter fridge/freezer unit, an integrated washing machine/dryer and stainless-steel sink. A glazed side door provides access to a sunny terrace and there is a path around the side of the building to the parking area, convenient for food delivery.

    A turning pine staircase in the corner of the main reception room ascends to the first floor level.

    First Floor

    Upstairs a small landing opens up onto two well proportioned, carpeted double bedrooms and a good sized family bathroom. These rooms are filled with light from the pretty windows that frame views over the garden to the south and open countryside to the north, further adding to the attraction of this lovely property.

    There are a number of integral wardrobes and storage cupboards, with a water tank and immersion tank in the bathroom cupboard.

    Exterior, gardens and parking

    There is a shared entrance drive that leads round to Mariners private gravelled parking court with parking space for two cars … or boats. A rendered wall divides the parking area from the attached cottage and the rest of the front garden is enclosed by timber fencing and mature shrub planting.

    Pretty flower borders surround the entrance drive planted with periwinkle, palms and winter flowering Camellias.

    The rear garden is well enclosed and private, featuring a brick path that provides access to the rear of the mature planting beds. A patio area provides a sheltered sun trap behind the house, an ideal space for summer barbecues.

    Opposite the entrance drive is the well-equipped village playing field and the public footpath that leads straight down to the water.
